Big Bang North West

LSTM’s Respiratory Research team led by Simon Jochems, the A·WOL Consortium’s Louise Ford and Kelly Johnston with support from RCDD’s Emily Adams took part in the Big Bang North West at the Exhibition Centre in Liverpool.

The Big Bang North West is a STEM celebration, organised by All About STEM, for school children which enables young people to discover the exciting and rewarding STEM-based careers available in their local area via fun interactive activities.

LSTM’s Respiratory Research team showcased their ‘Breathtaking Pneumococcus’ exhibit which used a giant floor-based Snakes and Ladders game to tell the story of the immune cells and bacteria present in people’s nasal passages!
